Antique Edwardian Aquamarine Seed Pearl 9ct Gold Willis and Sons Necklace circa 1912

A delightful, rare to find, early Australian piece hallmarked by one of our iconic jewellery firms Willis and Sons.

Dating to after 1904 (by style of his hallmark), Edwardian and would have been handcrafted around 1910-1915.

Constructed from 9ct rose gold of the hue that is almost a yellow/rose in colour.  With original trace chain also in 9ct and barrel clasp stamped 9ct also.
This all original piece is set with two gloriously pretty mid-blue natural Aquamarines both of which are multi-claw set, open at the back allowing the light to flow through to highlight their shimmer and sparkle. 

Highlighting the Aquamarines are a series of natural seed/half pearls which compliment the pale blue of the Aquas perfectly.

Quite a mix of Edwardian and elements of Art Nouveau styling this highly sought after and collectable early Australian piece would and is as wearable in todays fashion climate as it was over 100 years ago.
